AUG.- SEPT.- OCT. 1957
** By Leonard Uohida
We were surprised one Tues-_
day evening last month to see
scheduled on Channel 2 "Lit-
tle Tokyo", one of the ob-
jectionable movies brought to
the attention of the Denver
T.V. stations*
Unfortunately, we noticed
the scheduling at 8 p.m. and
the movie was to be shown at
8*30*
A hurried call to Channel
2 informed us that it was too
late to "pull" the movie so
we inquired as to the possi-
bility of making a statement
as per National JACL sugges-
tion. Channel 2's Tommy
Greenhow said this was not
possible without "front of-
fice clearance" and told us
he would try to reach Mr*
Gallagher, program director
who had promised cooperation
in this matter. So we set-
tled down to wait the movie
and the statement. However,
said statement was not forth-
coming. Commercial after com-
nercial passed and still no
statement. Finally this dis-
tasteful movie ended. Then
another call to Tommy Green-
how voicing very strenuous
objections to the movie. He
assured us that we would hear
from Mr. Gallagher the fol-
lowing morning.
Ve have not yet heard from
Channel 2 in any way.
This is very disappointing
to us since we had-Mr. Gal-
laghers assurance that Chan-
nel 2 would not show these

i church mouse" didn't mean a
thing to a couple of burglars

door of the CSM Church on
August 20, and getting away
with about $116.
Although the office was
well ransacked, none of the
equipment was touched.
"The thieves hit it lucky,
that was the only time we
ever kept any money in the
office," commented Rev,
Uyemura.

Again the JACL Bulletin
will appear"Under New Manage-
.ment" notice.
Back in the spring, Joan
Tolentino took over several
issues until her doctor said
"No."
Then our prexy, Buddy
Uchida,got excited and enlis-
ted the talents of one Kayko
Matsuura, CU journalism grad-
uate,who successfully put out
June-July edition in Septem-
ber Miss Matsuura resigned
her post for personal rea-
sons leaving the Bulletin
back where it started, "no
convenient editor".
No doubt the JACL has
reached the bottom of the
bucket as far as Bulletin ed-
itor is concerned. If some-
body doesn't come to the res-
cue of their fellow men, the
JACL will have no Bulletin
next term.
However, yours truly, will
pinch hit for the remaining
months of the 1957 term with
apologies and excuses of a
ham editor.

This is a friendly warning
to people who are planning to
call Bert or Sue Aklyartia.
"DO NOT PHONE DURING to
6 P.M."
The following a sample of
what happened to Mrs.Pat Sch-
roeder when she dialed PI f>-
8780.
"Hello" (a weak infant's
voice,)
PAT: "I want to speak to
your mother."
* VOICE: "You can't, she is
outside in the garden,"click.
10 minutes later,Pat tried
again.
VOICE: "Can't you see, I'm
watching the cartoons on the
TV.......don't bother me any
more." click.
Pat turned on the TV and
waited until the cartoon was
over. She tried again.
Greg Akiyama, age 3 must
have reluctantly got up from
the sofa because a voice was
heard calling "mama, mama,
somebody's on the phone."

Sometime we wonder where
the Nisei got those quaint
and picturesque handles like:
SKOOK Kurachi, MEACH Nogami ,
SARGE Terasaki, TAGUS'Murata,
TROODA Hirokawa, Tol Takamlne
GUYC Tajiri,KODY Kodama, GOON
Sakaguchi,MATA Tashiro, TAIKO
Tazawa, TURNO Odow, ZEKE Tol-
entino, HOOCH Okumura, and
others.
Nicknames come to being in
a peculiar sort of way. For
instance MIN YASUI explained
to this writer that TURNO
ODOW got his odd name when
his name TERUO (handwritten
original) was mis-read by the
statistics clerk "u" for "n"
. and thus another nickname
was born.
No doubt it would be in-
teresting to learn the his-
tory of the rest of the mon-
ickers. In the meanwhile we
"viva nicknames".
HAKUJINS FINE JAPANESE
LINGO BELLY, BELLY TRICKY
A series of would-be embar
-rassing situation was avert-
ed at the September meeting
of JACL cabinet.
It happened like this:
Our president, Bud Uchida,
not being hep to Japanese
phraseology has been calling
and and all types of gratuity
as "kozen". He would say:
"Since Miss So and So is go-
ing to be married, let's send
her a "kozen", etc....
Mrs. Eottie Uchida,being a
non-Japanese didn't know any
better and so she admitted
that she has been using the
"kozen" phrase at all of her
telephone contacts doing JACL
official business.
There were two very red
faces when they were told
that"kozen" literally means
incense money, and used only
on funeral occasions.
CHASING HOLDUP NOT
WORTH KNOCK ON HEAD
JOHN OTA, of 2221 Court
Place, leader of the Kibei
Nisei Club of this city was
hurt critically from head
wounds when he was chasing a
Negro holdup who victimized
the M-0 Grocery store which
he and his wife ouerate.
LUCKY AT "SERIES POT"
Among the very few lucky
persons during the World
Series games were HELENE IOKA
807 32 St.,who hit the jack-
pot to the tune of one hun-
dred smackers in the company
pool. Two years ago, HELENE
raked in a similar pot. Some
girls have all the luck.
# DR. BOB MAYEDA cashed in
two small jackpots during the
Series, according to very re-
liable sources.

PEOPLE ARE FUNNY.
THIS HAPPENS iCAL
Time heals many wounds.
Fifteen years ago, this may
have never happened.
In a California town of
2500, by the name of CA11-'
patria, a Nisei druggist met
with tragic misfortune. His
wife was killed and he was
badly injured in an auto
wreck.
But townspeople from the
mayor down have stepped in to
help him. "Give us the keys
to your store,"said the mayor
at the druggist *s hospital
bed side, "and we'll keep
things going until you get
hack into shape."
And that is what they are
doing until Takeo Momita, $6
year old former Sacramento
Nisei could get around on his
own power.
This news gives special
meaning when it comes On top
of the "Little Rock"incidents
coupled with the fact that a
little more than 15 years ago
Momita was one of the thous-
ands who were driven out of
the very same locality by the
very same people.
SANS£IGET5 PRITTItR
The Sansei are getting pret
-tier than their mothers.
This welcome news comes from
observation of Takashi Suzuki
anthropology professor of
Tokyo University, who claims
that the buck teeth have re-
ceded more than 20 percent
during the past 200 years.
Not only that, nose, eyes,
and facial form has greatly
improved.
JAPAN "REIGI" FOR SON
George Furuta, former op-
erator of the Denver manchu
Cafe, was in San Francisco to
see his son Stanley, 20, off
to Japan where he is expected
to be indocrinated with some
of that Japanese "reigi" or
mannerism of the Orient,

paign. In the meantime plans
are in order for the purchase

Anxiously waiting for
his bride from Japan to ar-
rive here soon is Dr. Yuji
Oishi, resident pathologist
at the Children Hospital. He
rented an apartment at I33I

nest... He and his wife may
